Dawkins Out vs Steelers

The Denver Broncos face quite the uphill battle this Sunday and they will have to go at it again without the emotional leader of their defense Brian Dawkins.

Dawkins missed a game against the New England Patriots in Week Fifteen before playing in Week Sixteen against the Buffalo Bills and suffering a neck injury that even through today has made his fingers tingly and numb. The Broncos captain did not play in Week Seventeen against the Kansas City Chiefs. Coincidentally all three of those games were losses.


Cornerback Jonathan Wilhite has been ruled questionable for the Broncos for this weekend by the team with an illness. Fullback Spencer Larsen has yet to be able to participate in practice and could also miss this weekend's game, undrafted rookie Austin Sylvester would replace Larsen if the veteran fullback is unable to go.
